MOTOCROSS: MEXICO BELONGS TO SIDI! - In MX2 Covington is first and Seewer second. The Swiss rider keeps the red plate as leader of the World Series.

The season of major league motocross continues to bring thrills and success to Sidi and their riders. Round 4 of the 2017 World Series hit the track on the Leon circuit in Mexico. The Mexican stop saw Sidi colours and their Crossfire 3 Srs boots shine and triumph yet again. 

Most of the credit belongs to Sidi’s MX2 riders, who blew away all the competition. In race1 victory went to Switzerland’s Jeremy Seewer (Suzuki) and American Thomas Covington (Husqvarna) walked away in 4th place. In race2 the placements were inverted, with victory going to Covington and Seewer claiming 4th place. All this translates into a fantastic Sidi double header in the final standings for the Mexican Grand Prix, with Thomas Covington stepping up to the top spot on the podium and Jeremy Seewer on the second step. However, the latter still holds on to his red plate as leader in the MX2 World Series.

In the MXGP, success eluded Tony Cairoli (Ktm), yet the Sicilian champion proved that he is still in top form. An error he made in the start meant that he only garnered a fourth place in race1. However, things went much better in race2 for the eight-time World Champion. In the first laps of the race he tried to break out of second place and launch an attack on Gajser. When that failed Cairoli continued to race astutely, fending off attacks by Paulin to take home a second place that will play an important role in the final World Series classification, where at the moment Gajser is in command (156 points) with a 20 point advantage over him (136 points).

After the 4 first tests around the world between Qatar, Indonesia, Argentina and Mexico, now the motocross circus will return to Europe, in Italy, to be exact, where the Trentino GP will be held on April 16th.
